Staff at Kids Planet Billinge held a Christmas Fair in December to help raise funds for Bloodwise, an established UK cancer charity that has been beating blood cancers since 1960.
The Christmas fair invited friends and families in and around Billinge to enjoy a fun-filled day with Santa and his donkeys in addition to fun stalls and games for the children. With help from family and friends, the nursery on Main Street which opened in 2017, raised a fantastic £489.71 for the charity which funds world-class research into all types of blood cancer.
On receiving the cheque, a Bloodwide representative said: “We’re thrilled to receive a phenomenal £489.71 from Kids Planet Billinge. Blood cancer is the fifth most common cancer in adults and the most common in children. This incredible donation will not only help us to fund life-saving research and provide essential information and support services to those affected by blood cancer but also raise awareness of this disease that has a particularly low recognition rate amongst the general public. We are so grateful, thank you to everyone!”
Steph Mills, Assistant Nursery Manager said: “We decided to donate all monies raised from the Christmas fair to the Bloodwise charity as a close relative of one of our staff members is currently receiving support from the charity due to having acute lymphoblastic leukaemia. We are so happy to not only be able to contribute funding to help those affected with blood cancer but to raise awareness throughout our community of this disease”.
